Sun exposure and the aging process were causing this 51-year-old-woman to be unsatisfied with her appearance. She was unhappy with the wrinkles around her eyes and thought her skin looked tired and dull. Wanting to revitalize her look, she contacted Dr. Stoker's Practice and set up a consultation to discuss plastic surgery in Los Angeles.
Her surgeon took the time to ask her specific questions about what she wanted to change. She pointed out that she did not like the way her eyelids drooped because it made her blue eyes look smaller and less noticeable. She also wished for fewer lines and wrinkles and wanted her skin to look "lit from within." After hearing her concerns and examining her facial features, the surgeon recommended an eyelid surgery in Los Angeles as well as carbon dioxide laser resurfacing. Often it is beneficial to combine surgical and non-surgical facial procedures for patients who want an overall facial rejuvenation.
For the operation, her surgeon performed upper and lower eyelid surgery by removing sagging skin from the upper lid and tightening the lower lid. After she healed, she returned for the carbon dioxide laser resurfacing to smooth out her skin. Her pictures were taken five weeks after surgery and show a significant improvement in skin tone with fewer wrinkles and a glowing complexion. Her eyes are also more open and prominent. She is very pleased with her new look.

The results are a younger, more alert appearance.

Because she had multiple concerns, she was curious to know if combing procedures was safe. Her surgeon assured her that combining facial procedures is not only safe, but can be ideal since it minimizes downtime and the risks associated with general anesthesia. In particular, she was interested in chin augmentation and eyelid surgery, which were easily performed in conjunction with each other. As can be seen in her "before" pictures, her surgeon used special markings to mark both areas to be performed together.
She and her surgeon decided that she would have both lower and upper eyelid surgery to decrease the puffiness beneath her eyes and tighten the sagging skin above her eyes. Combined with a chin implant, the eyelid surgery would improve her appearance greatly.
